McLaren F1 GTR Art Car set for auction date, expected to fetch $3 million
We don’t know if any of you have $3 million rolled up in your pockets - we don’t, in case you were wondering about our finances - but in the event that you do, here’s something that you would find good use for in all that moolah.
We just found out that one of the first - and therefore, more famous than most of its brethren - McLaren F1 GTRs is now being auctioned for, you guessed it, € 2 – 2.5 million, or somewhere in the neighborhood of $3 million.
This particular vehicle is historical for being labeled as ’Chassis #5’ and was originally purchased by one French racer Jean-Luc Maury-Laribiére. Jean-Luc used it during the 24 Hours of Le Mans back in 1994 and a year later, commissioned world-famous French sculptor and painter César to turn the F1 GTR into Maury-Laribiére’s very own supercar art car.
Now, it looks like Mr. French racer is ready to part with his baby and has turned to Artcurial Motors to help him auction off his multi-million dollar car at the Le Mans Classic event on July 9.
So there you have it. Interested? If you are, then you better be ready to put a dent in your bank account.
